Either Solve or Reduce will produce a result. But, of course, you have to type the equation in correctly. It must be typed exactly as follows: a*Sin[x] + b*Cos[x] == 0. This yields a result with Mathematica 5.2 on Linux. srj6 at hotmail.com wrote: > I'm trying to compute this following eq.... > > a*sin(x) + b*cos(x) = c > > I did ------> Solve[a*sin[x] + b*cos[x] = c, x] > > But it doesn't work.
